Crash course for the reluctant essayist

July 13, 2016

notes on the phone 

On your hand,

Scripto tattoos

Things you say to me that matter

The best memories are the hardest to remember

(For your little brother’s birthday amnesia)

Prescribe

An hour or two of reading

Lists of great Greeks, Romans, monastics, Renaissance dudes

Then Romantics, Realists, Idealists, Transcendentalists

Modernists, post-modernists

At least until you reach 

Warhol’s ghostly revolver

Then draw forth the prompt yourself

The passage we all know to be true

…Light in the dark…

Words shot with light 

Only one can save us
